NAMM 2014: MIDAS Releases Multi-Channel Mic Preamp


MIDAS tells us that their new XL48 packs 8 Midas XL4 mic preamps into a 1U box, complete with sweepable high- and low-pass filters, XL8 A-D converters and a super, low-jitter 1 ppm clock. Additional features include 8-segment LED input meters, individually-switchable phantom power, polarity invert and -20 dB pad. All inputs are provided via Neutrik XLR and 25-way D-sub connectors.

The XL48 also features both analogue and digital outputs in ADAT and AES/EBU format. All five outputs can be used simultaneously, making the XL48 a multi-function, analogue/digital mic splitter, as well as adding the Midas touch to 8 channels of your mix. Multiple clocking options are available including external wordclock – and internal 96 / 88.2 / 48 / 44.1 kHz.

Shawn Watts, VP Global Sales – Pro Division, told us, "Now anyone can add the incredible sound of Midas' award-winning mic preamps to the top of their signal path. The beautifully packaged XL48 is easy to use, easy to read and extremely well-built. It will instantly become the favorite piece of gear in your rack!"

Applications include portable recording rigs, analogue and/or digital splits between consoles, or improving an ordinary digital console with Midas mic preamps.

Pricing and Availability:

The Midas XL48 is available at a suggested U.S. MAP of $5,999
